Australian Koala coins are one of the most sough-after precious metals in the world right now. The captivating designs and impressive finish on these coins makes them a favorite with both investors and collectors. The koala sovereign coin is produced in weights ranging from 10 oz and 1 kilogram to 1/10 oz and ¼ oz.
On the Silver Australian Koala High Relief Proof, the brand-new design for 2015 appears to leap off the surface of the coin, as the multi-strike coining process created a design set that stands out drastically from the background field, which has a concave appearance when the coin is held flat in your hand.
The reverse side of the 2015 1 oz Silver Australian Koala Proof Coin is the latest depiction of the koala. In this year’s design, the marsupial is featured sitting in the crook of a tree, with its claws gripping the upper branches to steady it as the creatures stares off into the distance. The words “Australian Koala” are engraved above, with the year of minting, weight, purity, and metal content of the coin listed below.
On the obverse is the iconic image of Queen Elizabeth II. Featured in right-profile relief, she is encircled by engravings that include “Elizabeth II,” “Australia,” and the face value of the coin.
The Perth Mint produces Australian Koala coins in a variety of weights and versions each year. The high-relief proof is a unique striking, and mintage for this coin is strictly limited each year. Don’t wait any longer to get your hands on this precious metal!
